    Long antenna?

    So I just bought an e revo vxl 1/16 brushless. Its 2.4GHz. So shouldn't I have a short antenna or am I getting that wrong? I opened the box up and seen this ugly antenna hanging there. I thought the new ones had the shorty?

    it should be a short antenna if you have 2.4ghz
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    I haven't seen my buddies but he said it has the long antenna(sticking way up out of the body).
    I asked him what his controller looked like and he told me it was the rounded top one with no antenna and one red button.

    His came from Tower Hobbies. I wonder if they have some old stock or something

    I think traxxas has changed them. if you search them they have been switched to a longer antenna. I have no idea why they would do this.

    Are you sure it is not just the tube sticking out?
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
